“The soul is here for its own joy.” – Rumi

Thanks for stopping by! This blog was created to share with you the many things that inspire me. In Japanese culture they have a saying for this, it is called “Ikigai”, it essentially means “a reason to enjoy life” or “a reason to get up in the morning.” Everyone has an ikigai but sometimes people have trouble finding it. In today’s world it’s easy to lose touch with our true authentic selves.  We let other factors get in the way, like people’s opinions or our fears about making money and achieving success. We go on a path that is not really aligned with our ikigai, or the truest version of ourselves. Sadly, this makes us miss out on a lot of opportunities when it comes to life, work, happiness and fulfillment.

Over the years, I have spent time focusing on things that I believe to be important pieces to the puzzle of my own life, searching for my own ikigai. I have traveled and lived in countries very different from my own and studied many ideas. I’m always striving towards a more holistic and interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. I think it’s important to be conscious of yourself, the world, different cultures and the environment in which we live. I value people, perspectives, experiences, learning new things and being challenged. Thank you again for checking out my blog! I look forward to sharing with you my inspiration, passion and adventures.
